Second M, first M4!

Hey! just wanted to show my new (to me) m4. Since I've been doing a few things here and there to bring it up to my standards, i just wanted to share a bit of the progress and show more or less phase 1 of her journey.

Backstory: I had traded in my 2012 evo x (making about 550awhp, big turbo, JRZ RS Pro's, fully prepped for Sebring) for a 2013 e92 M3. The trade was a hard one as i really loved how the evo handled but i needed something a little less "boy racer" and since i was still daily driving the car to school and clinical rotations, it was a bit much for that.

In comes my m3, 20k miles, previous enthusiast auto group car that the seller had no space for, and i was the lucky guy to find it and buy it off him! No less than 3 months into owning it i get rear ended and they total the car out. It was pretty bad, i had a concussion for the first time ever, shoulder issues and much more. Well, finally i was on the hunt for a new mint example but also had this burning itch for an f82, i found one lightly used (45k mi) at Hgreg which i usually try to stay away from, but after some research and talking to some friends i find out its in actually good condition. Also since i want to track the car eventually i figured getting a pristine example would be kind of a waste, so i gave in and finally bought my m4.

Out the gate i HATED the wheels, the dark tail light tint, side marker tint, etc. Once i got my hands on it i cleaned this thing like no other, first thing was the tint on the lights lol. I could not stand it!

Well enough rambling, here she is and the progress:
The evo:



The m3:



The M4!
tints and big wheels...



After a much needed leatherique treatment!

And now...

Congrats on the M4.

Congrat the M double spokes wheels are much better ride compared to 666 wheels.

Evo all day. Unless you need a daily lol
I always joke about getting rid of mine but I think I would be hurt if I didnít see it in my garage

M is a nice all around car but modding and maintenance is very expensive compared to the evo

Nice car. Congrats

I know, it feels great driving around with the new wheel/tire set up. Found an awesome thread here that put me on to the 265F/295R MPSS tire upgrade and the car handling is SO much better. The difference is night and day. Should be taking her out to sebring here soon and testing the stock feel before upgrades.

Def. regret getting rid of her after so much work, but the feel of the M's is something else. Would love to have both, though!

Congrats on the new car! Looks so nice with the 265/295 PSS. I'm going to use the same sizes on my Apex wheels soon. Which spacers do you run on your M437?

I have had both version and the 666 is a bit stiffer than 437 wheels.

It is a bit more, granted. Just not "That" much. I myself did the ZCP with the 437's, a colleague from work chose the 666'ers, drove it with instant regret. To each his own I guess

Now I knew why all the CS version comes with 19" wheel set.

I didn't claim 20's were better, just not that much of a diff from the 19's. Now 18's....We're talking now.
